Spy - Full View Faux Browser
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
◊ What is Faux Web Browser? ◊
Faux Web Browser is created for iPhone and iPod Touch users who can't visit some restrictive web sites.
These restrictive web sites block your access based on the type of a browser you are using. For example, have you visited a website which blocked you from accessing it because you are not using Internet Explorer?
If you are using Firefox or other browsers, other than Internet Explorer, you cannot access such a web site. These restrictive web sites block you from accessing their content simply based on the type of your browser. And, they usually work with only Internet Explorer.
This doesn't improve when you are using iPhone or iPod Touch, because you have only Mobile Safari to use. And Mobile Safari is not widely accepted by many web sites which prefer only Internet Explorer.
Now, with SPY, that inconvenience is solved! You can visit any restrictive web sites and all web sites with SPY.
That's a piece of mind.
When you face a restrictive web site which permits only Internet Explorer, use SPY! Now you can access it and see its content with SPY.
How do you do it? Pose as one of the favorite desktop browsers with SPY! You have several browser types to choose from.
◊ Choose Favorite Desktop Browser Mode. ◊
Here is a list of browsers Spy can pose or fake as.
— Firefox 3.0 for Mac.
— Firefox 3.0 for Windows.
— Internet Explorer 6.0 for Windows.
— Internet Explorer 7.0 for Windows.
— Internet Explorer 8.0 for Windows.
◊ How can I use Faux Mode? ◊
Turn Faux Mode ON by tapping "Spy" button on the bottom menu and toggle "Faux Mode" switch ON.
Choose your favorite desktop browser among the list. After choosing your favorite browser, close the Faux Mode panel.
Now, SPY is pretending to be your chosen desktop browser. Visit your favorite site which blocked access earlier.
For example, google.com does not restrict your access, but shows different content.
Play with a different browser type. Experiment with it!

What's New in Version 3.1
- Bug Fixes
It's fast, and it protects my privacy by deleting my browsing history. So I can open any web sites. No need to remember to delete my browsing history. :) Shake it to get the full screen browsing. And I can view the pages in the lanscape view. Oh, I can visit some websites which require only IE (Internet Explorer). They don't work with Safari. I was able to view some IE only web sites. Very nice!!
Excellent Web Browser
Normally, if I am happy with an app, I don't take the time to write a positive review. But for SPY, I feel I am compelled to do so. First of all, I LOVE spy. Why? I asked that question so many times to myself but what can I say? I just love it. It works flawlessly. It looks stunning. Love the name. It looks good with other other iphone apps on my phone. People ask me what it is, but I don't tell em. This keeps them guessing. lol
Cheap, but worthless
I suppose that I did not really expect much from a $1 browser--to do so would be foolish. Unfortunately hope can make us do foolish things. In this case throw away a dollar.
Now, I am not irate--it's only a dollar. But I do find it strange that an app such as this could exist. It absolutely does not do what it advertises. This product is based on and named for a feature that it simply does not have.
The most the so-called faux browser will get you is some poorly rendered web pages--maybe if your lucky a sort of functional normal version of a website that ordinarily directs Safari on the iPhone to a mobile version--but do not under any circumstances expect this to work with Internet Explorer-only websites. It just doesn't.
Save your money and buy a song on iTunes or a different app that claims less and delivers more.
